White was born in Brooklyn, New York and moved as a teen to Bridgeport, Connecticut, where he graduated from Central High School in 1985. He is an accomplished martial artist, holding seven different black belts: Shotokan, Tae Kwon Do, Kobudo, Goju Ryu with Master Eddie Morales, Tang Soo Do, Wushu and Kyokushin, with a specific focus in Kyokushin (although his style incorporates aspects of many different martial arts forms).White started martial arts training at the age of eight. White is a former teacher. He cites his history in education as the reason why, despite his personal love for the music genre on ”a lot of levels”, he cannot ”in good conscience” have a positive opinion on hip hop or ”excuse some of its pervasive and destructive elements”, due to his experience with youngsters who had difficulty seeing the difference between it and real life.
He discusses many topics such as: Education, Family, Faith and Marriage, Fatherhood, Karate, Kung Fu & Martial Arts, Troubled Youths & Adults and lastly Violence and Crime. To read more on White visit www.rkdmusic.com/michaeljai.html
